Defense Secretary Ash Carter is a funny guy. We’re not out to disparage him personally (although we’ll happily disparage Washington’s foreign policy for which he is partially responsible), but he sure does have an uncanny ability to land himself in situations that end up generating amusing photo ops.

Of course to be fair to Carter, Washington hasn’t exactly put him in a good position. After all, what the US is doing in Syria is deplorable and with the passing of MANPADS and anti-tank missiles to Sunni extremists near Aleppo, the whole “strategy” now borders on the bizarre, especially in light of what happened over the Sinai Peninsula last weekend and also taking into account Washington’s relationship with Siite militias battling ISIS in Iraq.

Meanwhile, the situation in the South China Sea is just downright silly, as Washington and Beijing risk starting World War III over 3,000 acres of sand that Beijing piled on top of reefs in the Spratlys.

Still, when you’re the face of The Pentagon, you’ve got to champion the narrative and that narrative now revolves around two things, i) a resurgent Russia, and ii) the rise of China.

Put simply (and colloquially), more than one US military strategist believes the US and NATO would be “annihilated” in a Balkan battle with the Russians and when it comes to China, well, getting into a maritime dispute in the South Pacific (which is the right way to analyze this by the way, because it’s not like Beijing is going to sail into San Francisco and invade the US mainland) might be a horrible idea:
